The Literary Horror Book Club will focus on the darker side of literature, from gothic classics to current award winners. We like dark fantasy, supernatural and existential horror, or anything that's both well-written and blood-chilling. Moderated by Quail Ridge staffer and life-long horror enthusiast, Jon Carroll Thomas (look for the guy to the left). The club meets the second Thursday of each month at 7 pm.
